"I really loved how well-balanced Stanford’s sociology programs, both undergraduate and graduate, were. They offered a wealth of interesting courses and research opportunities, many of which I still rely on today. The classes were small, and professors were always working on something cool that they’d love to share with you. Some of my favorite courses were Sociology of Gender, Sociology of Law, The Urban Underclass (or any #Rosenfeld class, haha), and Topics in Economic Sociology. I’ve been working in marketing at Apple since graduating, and my formal training in sociology makes working in a need-to-know office environment more rewarding than I could have ever thought possible. Seriously, going to work is like stepping into a field experiment on a daily basis, and the methodological skills I learned have helped me with everything from crafting narratives and building marketing campaigns to managing people and solving interpersonal conflicts."
